Public Invited to Join First Virtual Science and History Week

Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park will host the first Science and History Week virtual speaker series on September 21-24. Topics include land restoration, wildlife research, and historical park figures. All virtual events are free and open to the public. Participants can register online to watch each live presentation.

Parks Canada and the National Park Service have jointly hosted an annual Science and History Day since 2004. This year, live webinars replace in-person events due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions. The virtual presentations will take place during Canada’s National Science Literacy Week.

The series highlights current research and historical topics related to Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Each presentation will give viewers the opportunity to connect with scientists and historians from the park and get a unique look at our archives, insights, and latest findings.

Glacier National Park Superintendent Jeff Mow added, “Science and History Week allows us to celebrate the long-standing cooperation between Waterton and Glacier as we conduct research about our shared history and resources.”

The Science and History Week virtual presentation schedule is detailed below. All presentations occur from noon to 12:45 p.m., Mountain Daylight Time.
